TeenAge Communication Theatre (TACT) is a performance group of 9th -12th grade students in the Dallas/Fort Worth area who write and perform skits about issues important to teens. Troupe members learn and share information about peer pressure, dating violence, healthy relationships and more. These skits are performed in-person and virtually!

Tell me about TACT performances!

Performances generally last between 45 and 90 minutes and cover up to nine topics. Each performance is divided into three parts:

Part 1
A short scene, which is left unresolved.

Part 2
The audience has an opportunity to question the actors while still in character.

Part 3
The actors come out of character and introduce themselves to the audience. During this section, the actors answer questions about TACT and factual information about the topics covered.
